The Ability to Create a Prosperous Life
in a Global Society
We are passionate about educating our students to become active global citizens who share the global environment, inherit to the future, and contribute to the global society, and who make their own decisions and lead their own lives. Today, with the spread of the Internet, IOT, and DX, we are entering an era in which we can connect with the world from anywhere. Such a society will increasingly demand communication skills, including English, empathy that embraces diversity, leadership skills to collaborate and cooperate with multinational peers, as well as STEAM elements such as programming and design thinking. We believe that it is important for children to acquire these skills in a natural way over a prolonged period of time, from the age of 1 to 18. For this reason, we have introduced the International Baccalaureate Curriculum, one of the world’s standards in education, to all of our campuses, and provide it in a bilingual environment (Japanese and English). On the other hand, as an educational institution that takes care of our valuable students, we operate our school with safety and security as our top priority in all aspects of childcare, intellectual education, dietary education, and physical education so that parents can leave their children in our care knowing that they are safe with us. 20 years from now, your child will be the star of the future that we are raising him or her to be. We will continue to develop and improve the quality of our education by always looking 20 years ahead and considering what will be needed in society 20 years from now.
